Team owner and boss Tony Fernandes announced this week the green T128 cars will begin running General Electric branding from Silverstone in July.

Asked by CNN if the wide-ranging agreement will lead to Team Lotus running energy-recovery technology in F1 next year, he said: "Without a doubt. Definitely, next year, we will have KERS ... so it's a big plus, not only financially, but technologically".

In 2011, Team Lotus is one of only a few teams not already using KERS technology.
